If the polls are correct, Donald Trump should rack up a significant number of delegates in Tuesday’s northeastern primary states. However, the Trump campaign is already looking ahead to May 3rd, when the state of Indiana holds its presidential primary. Texas Senator Ted Cruz is hoping to stop Trump’s momentum in the Hoosier state, but his job might just have gotten a bit more difficult, as an Indiana legend has stepped forward to throw his support behind the real estate mogul.
Bobby Knight, the legendary college basketball coach who led the University of Indiana Hoosiers from for nearly three decades, has officially endorsed Trump for President. Aside from taking his team to multiple NCAA Championships, Knight is perhaps best known for his quick temper and an incident in 1985 when he threw a chair across the basketball court during a game against Purdue University.
Knight will join Trump at a campaign rally in Indiana on Wednesday.
Real Clear Politics polls shows Trump with a 6-point lead over Senator Ted Cruz, although the polls were taken prior to the announcement of an alliance between Cruz and Ohio Governor John Kasich.
